Oh, he's my palisman and we're bonded for life. I'd annihilate anyone who'd hurt him.
—Eda talking about Owlbert, "Escape of the Palisman"

Owlbert is the palisman atop the Owl Staff. He is able to detach, turn into wood when attached to the staff, and steal things for Eda.


Owlbert bears the appearance of a typical owl, displaying brown-toned feathers, golden-yellow eyes, and orange feet. A staff-binding interlock is located underneath his right foot that allows him to detach from atop of Eda's staff.


Owlbert acts like a trained pet, responding to any of Eda's commands or anyone she tells him to listen to. However, despite being loyal to Eda, he does have a mind of his own, listening to people like Luz and her friends on his own volition. He also enjoys playing games like a pet would, but is also intelligent enough to e.g. play Hexes Hold'em with Eda and be annoyed by her gloating after she won.
